Graciously Green: A trip back to ’85

by Mindy Lockard on May 17, 2009

May’s Manner of the Month is Graciously Green. I’m thrilled with this month’s issue as it’s not only beautiful but includes a group of fantastic guest writers who provide simple ways to be gracious to our our world through the use of natural cleaning and beauty products, refining the 3Rs and gardening solutions. For more on simple and affordable ways to live graciously green subscribe to Manner of the Month’s May issue.

With all of the green living from the issue fresh in my mind, I’ve found myself returning to my 80’s concert choir roots and breaking into a pop ballad when I see Ty or the girls committing a green infraction. Although I’m not entirely serious in my serenade, it has produced some serious results with, “Mom, where should I recycle this?”

So, tie a sweater over your shoulders and pop a  couple of pennies into your loafers. We’re taking a trip back to ’85 for a reminder that while fashion has changed (thank goodness) the need to work together to make a difference has not! Hit it Mr. Richey…
